Who's taking an Avy 1 course this Spring?
I've read my books, practiced with my more experienced bros and I know my local areas well - but it's time for formal avalanche education so I can feel a little more ready to explore places outside of my backyard.
I am not going to be working for a few months and would love to get my avy level 1 course done soon. I have a couple things on the calendar in March (including the Summit!), but it seems like no classes are being offered in April, so I should get this done. Anybody else taking their avy class this March? I'd be stoked to take a class with another magg.
I've checked the listings on the teletips avy course forum and I hope there are more going than what is listed there. Any suggestions on where else to look? My preference would be to take a class somewhere close enough that I can get there and stay in my van, so BC, WA, OR, CA, NV, ID, MT or UT are the prime candidates. Suggestions and/or links to good operations would be appreciated.another Handsome Boy graduate

Anybody taken the course offered by North Cascades Mountain Guides? www.ncmountainguides.com
Steve House works there, so I am pretty sure it must be a great operation. they are having an avy 1 course the last weekend of the summit that I am considering attending. Any thoughts? Any joiners?another Handsome Boy graduate

besides Mountainsavvy mountainsavvy.com, I believe that the Mazamas have some Avy classes on Hood too, but thats about it.

I just took the ASI course from Jeff Hill and highly recommend it. Great course and very educational.

My course with North Cascades Mountain Guides was very good. It was great that it was such a small class and the people were all really chill. I learned a ton and enjoyed myself.another Handsome Boy graduate
